Good Wednesday evening, it was a hot day across the region on this first day of June. A lot of 90’s on the board today even across some foothills locations for the first time in 2022.
Looking at the water vapor tonight you can see a shortwave trough quickly moving east across the Northern Plains. That will move east on Thursday and will drag a front through the Carolinas by Thursday night.
With another hot day in store, moderate amounts of humidity and the front passing through, we will have a better chance at scattered showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.
The day will start quiet, warm and muggy. However by mid afternoon convection will fire up and move from west to east. The storms could last into the evening hours before activity dies off tomorrow night. There does not seem to be an organized severe weather threat at this time but heavy rain and dangerous lightning looks to be the biggest risk.
Once the front moves in late Thursday night, less humid air pushes back into the region lowering temperatures for the upcoming weekend. It will be quite pleasant.
